In recent weeks, WellSky, a global healthcare tech company, and Qlik, a leading data and analytics company, announced the launch of a new COVID-19 heat map feature: the WellSky COVID-19 Tracker, designed to provide home-based care providers a heightened level of pandemic visibility.
During this public health crisis, healthcare workers have been facing insurmountable shortages of essential, finite resources such as personal protective equipment (PPE). WellSky is addressing the issue head on by delivering clients free access to data donated by Qlik to track the virus’s spread. Using the WellSky-Qlik heat map, providers can now track outbreak hot spots, anticipate locations with rising infection rates, and distribute PPE resources to locations where clinical staff need it most, thus paving way for smarter, more informed decisions.
The heat map technology allows providers to juxtapose staff locations to confirmed COVID-19 cases across the country. By having access to this data, home-based care agencies can gain clear insight into the PPE supply chain and notice where staff may need more access to PPE resources, including medical-grade face masks, gloves, and gowns. With this heightened level of transparency, agencies can better manage their overall PPE supply and use data to adapt to changing conditions. This means smarter delivery and allocation of resources based on greatest need and highest geographic concentration of outbreaks.
